Giving as Worship

called-to-business

“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” (Mat 2:11)

 

When Jesus was a young child, the wise men came and worshipped Him. Then they gave Him gifts. This was a part of the act of paying homage to the newborn king. They honored Him with their giving.

 We too are called to worship in our giving. Sometimes we can be moved to bring something of value to Him. It is not giving to a church or to a worthy cause but just giving something of value to Him, to worship and to adore.

I am not sure how that transaction occurs in our hearts, but it is certainly saying you are worth more to me than gold.

Quick Prayer: I just want to worship and adore You. Amen.

    To live the Best Life we can for Jesus Christ Is a great Gift From Him to us and from us to Him and Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. What ever the treasure of our heart is By giving We let Nothing remain or stay between us and our Best Treasure Jesus Christ. To me our best gift Is Christ Jesus By giving Tracts Witnessing or just living an exemplary Life pointing to Jesus giving glory to God This a Great Gift But the Best in this Life Is To die to self and any idol To take up our cross and fallow Jesus. The Life of Christ is the best gift——————————-LOVE : In Christ; Wade Trombatore
